SOUTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

Drivers in Lehigh County may have spotted a helicopter landing at a local high school Monday, but officials say it was all about education.

A MedEvac helicopter landed outside of Parkland High School around 1:30 p.m.

Students in the school's fire science course were then able to tour the chopper.

School officials tell us the students just wrapped up the medical portion of their training, and this gave them a chance to observe, firsthand, how crews work on-board emergency medical helicopters.
